The centerpiece of the President's tax proposal is much more than an increase in the capital gains rates. The Administration also wants to eliminate the current system by requiring estates to pay capital gains taxes upon death. That is to say, when a person dies, there is a phantom taxable gain on all appreciation in value of a property even though there has been no disposition of the asset. Continue reading

The Biden Administration has launched a crusade to increase tax rates to satisfy an insatiable appetite to fund expanded government. It has embraced one of the worse ideas in tax policy by advocating recognition of income tax on unrealized gains at death. Continue reading

It is not clear what is the disposition and fate of these so-called detainees. Were they taken back across the border, released in the United States with their promise to appear in some Court at some later date (oh yeah), just released out right, put up in detentions camps, lodged in a nearby hotel? What? Continue reading

The more important figure is how many were not apprehended or detained? Continue reading

The country is in dire financial condition. The Federal government cannot indefinitely prop up businesses, defy market forces, support the unemployed forever, and borrow trillions (yes, trillions) of dollars to give out. This is going to be a huge problem for whomever and whatever comes next. Continue reading

As “modern” life has evolved, there are many things that make a person wonder how they happened and why we put up with them. You can just stay in the bathroom now and have everything you need at the swipe your hands. Supplies, watch any show, send a message, listen to music, order takeout—all on a screen about the size of a very expensive piece to toast. Continue reading

In early 2017 after President Trump took office, I told a large meeting with a client the following: “These guys are capable of anything so be prepared. Continue reading

I did not get paid for it, did not sell it, it did not further the financial welfare of the household but glad I did. It was tasty and so fun to do. Continue reading

The so-named Presidential candidate debate yesterday is a misnomer. Neither of these men is qualified to serve in such a distinguished office. Neither are Presidential. In fact, they are probably the two most unqualified candidates in the past 100 years. Horrible, horrible, horrible. Continue reading

United Healthcare and its pharmacy manager OptumRX are price gauging, have done me wrong and do not seem to care. Continue reading

I keep reading about college students and others gathering in hordes in all kinds of places-private and public-not using any common sense or consideration for their fellow humans. A good party or a 'roving' seems to be much more important. No belonging to a community, just selfish behavior. Continue reading

She is so far off center; she is not even in the circle, she could not find the center with a guide, a flashlight, and a map. Continue reading

Given the state of affairs, from this point forward I see very few good options and outcomes. However, let us looks at the lessons of the past few months and what we now know. Continue reading

I recently saw a picture of Joe Biden hunkered down in his basement or somewhere with a look that made me wonder if he knew what planet he was on. If elected he will be 78 years old when he assumes the Presidency of the United States. Mr. Biden reminded... Continue reading

I live in Fairfax County, Virginia outside of Washington on a winding two lane road but very near a major local county and a national park, both with miles upon miles of trails. The parks are closed with chain link fences, hundreds of orange cones, blocking entrances and hundreds of... Continue reading

During this horrible time, rather than drinking a quart of whiskey every week, I have engaged in baking a treat every week. It has been chocolate cookies, wheat bread, rye bread, banana bread and today it was peanut butter cookies. What a joy, what a diversion, what fun and so... Continue reading

In the past few weeks, I have heard a number of people state the worse part of the current virus turmoil is the effect on school children. They are being denied socialization with friends, graduation ceremonies, proms, sporting events, dating, riding skateboards and scooters. They are bored and missing vital... Continue reading

These days life seems to resemble two different movies. The first is Groundhog Day in which every day is the same, nothing progresses and no matter what is done during the day, there is no effect on the next day. For me, I get up, make the coffee, eat breakfast... Continue reading

Yesterday I checked the voice message service on my home landline telephone. The phone is only upstairs and it is rarely answered. There were 8 messages for the day. One from Karen, one from Denise, one in Spanish and the rest hang-ups. I do not know Karen and Denise or... Continue reading

From where does all this hate come? How did it get this way? Who are these people who spew venom and loathing? What ever happened to integrity and truth? Where are fairness and inalienable rights, due process, and civility? How did we let our leaders become so power obsessed and... Continue reading

What kind of a person steals a pumpkin? Up until last week, there was a beautiful, giant pumpkin adorning the front entrance of my house. It was placed there as a recognition and celebration of the season. To show passersby, friends and neighbors that Fall and Halloween are upon us... Continue reading

Untied States Democrat Senators are refusing to participate in just about any type of legislative activity these days This would include consideration of the (un) Affordable Health Care Act, which by most standards needs major (and I mean major) changes before it withers away. Democrat Leaders have done about all... Continue reading

BY: Jack O. Nutter Tax Reform. Seems so obvious. For what are we waiting? There is a dire need to overhaul the Federal income tax system. I do not see any disagreement on this notion. The tax code is a mess and littered with a bunch of garbage and ineffective... Continue reading
